KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The work to asphalt a busy road in the Kart-i-Naw locality of capital Kabul has been kicked-off on Monday, an official says.

The road would be completed within 14 months at a cost of $9 million, which would benefit thousands of residents of the area.

Abdul Ahad Wahid, acting mayor of the municipality, said during the ground breaking ceremony that the four kilometres long road was being funded by the Worldinfo-icon Bank (WB).

According to the official, the Kart-i-Naw road connects 8th, 12th, 16th, 21st and 22nd municipality districts with each others.

The road was in dilapidated conditions since long time and the residents have been demanding to asphalt the important road.

Shafiqa Ahmad, a resident of the locality, said the 8th municipality district was a backward area in Kabul and authorities did not pay proper attention to develop the area.

However, acting mayor rejects the complaints saying that the area has witnessed huge development in the last decade.

Abdul Qader Zazai, Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon member, thanked the municipality to asphalt the Kart-i-Naw road and asked the official to complete the projects within the specified time.
